Get rid off Back Pain Problems

Achieve full mobility with Back Pain treatments

Back pain causes extreme discomfort and can relegate a person to the bed for long periods that are both unproductive and painful. There are many hospitals providing Back Pain treatment in Chennai and it is important to get the right treatment at the right hands and at the right rates. Back pain is diagnosed with a range of physical tests to determine the range of the patient’s motion and nerve function. Samples of blood or urine are also collected to determine if the pain is due to infections or systemic problems that require medication. Additional tests such as X-rays help in accurately identifying the bones that could be broken or having defects.

 

Accurate and additional tests help provide suitable treatment

In the event of damage to the tissues or disk herniation, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scans are carried out. A CT scan (Computerized Tomography) may be recommended for those who will not be in a position to opt for an MRI scan. The findings of the scan can be interpreted perfectly only by a specialist in Back Pain treatment in Chennai as the readings sometimes do not indicate the gravity of the problem or vice versa. X-rays of the lumber spine will help to find out the damaged bone in our body. The readings read along with other tests and the history gives a final picture on the gravity of the problem and the nature of treatment that will alleviate the problem.
